On life and little creature comforts…

Cowl Scarf

It was never my intention to fall off the face of this blog, and quite honestly, those are words that I never thought I would utter after nearly nine years of showing up consistently.

As it turns out, my new blog, House of Valentina, has become an incredible delight for me, and has brought more opportunities for me than I ever imagined!  Everyone always says that you just have to step out and have a little faith in your dreams and I guess they were right!

At the same time, our youngest has been having a really, really hard time with school and I have had to spend more time focused on him to help him process through a lot of the changes he has gone through.  We switched his school a couple weeks ago and things seem to be improving but we’ve had some really rough days, some of it related to living in a foreign country and some of it not.  I’ll write more about that soon because, for now, I really want to chat about my current creature comforts (because isn’t that more fun anyways?)

My girlfriend, Jane, made me this beauuutiful cowl scarf that I have been wearing obsessively since the weather got cold.  Her work is AMAZING and so detailed… and she happens to have also decided to believe in her dreams and start selling her scarves.  You can see her Etsy shop here.  (You can custom order whatever color and size you like!)  I also love the larger sized one she sent me in an oatmeal color and even managed to grab a couple photos on one of the windiest days in Copenhagen!

My other favorites at the moment:  Chunky Sweaters over button down Denim shirts, Jungle Red or Dark and Stormy Lips, My Military Style Coat, and these booties!


What about you?  What are you up to these days?  Are the holidays keeping you super busy?

So sad about your precious boy -hope that you can work things out with him for his best. Spending quality time with him is definitely healing! Love your new blog and the videos -your work is always inspirational.
